Meb Keflezighi Breaks U.S. Masters Half Marathon Record

Meb Keflezighi ran 1:03:02 at Sunday's Rock 'n' Roll San Jose Half Marathon to set a new American masters record. The previous record was 1:03:23 by Mbarak Hussein. Keflezighi's 20K split during the race, 59:43, was under the old U.S. masters best for that distance. Keflezighi finished second to Jordan Chipangama of Zambia, who won in 1:03:00. On May 31, three weeks after Keflezighi turned 40, Chipangama defeated him by the same margin at the Rock 'n' Roll San Diego Half Marathon. Although Keflezighi's time in San Diego, 1:02:29, was faster than in San Jose, it doesn't count as the masters record because San Diego's course has too-great of a net elevation drop. (His 15K and 10-mile splits of 44:23 and 47:39 at San Diego in May are U.S. masters marks, because the first part of the course meets record-eligibility requirements.)
